Outstanding performance – qTOWER³

  • Patented fiber optic system for ideal real-time PCR signals
  • Market-leading temperature control
  • Six-position filter module system capable of up to six-fold channel multiplexing
  • Exceptional gradient technology: 0.1 °C to 40 °C across 12 columns utilizing the Linear Gradient Tool
  • qPCRsoft package for easy control and operation of the thermal cycler

The top performer among real-time thermal cyclers

The qTOWER3 utilizes eight individual light fibers capable of scanning an entire plate in only six seconds and eliminating the need for a passive reference. State-of-the-art block heating technology and temperature homogeneity across all wells is guaranteed with a gold coated silver block. These high-performance attributes combine to reduce the number of repeat analyses while increasing analysis speeds and significantly reducing cost per sample.

qTOWER³ Product Family – qPCR Your Way

The qTOWER³ product family of real-time thermal cyclers guarantees well-founded results with 12 color, FRET, and protein modules available to expand the qTOWER³’s capabilities as your research evolves. These real time thermal cyclers require no periodic calibration or maintenance for the life of the system and come with a market-leading 10-year optical warranty and 3-year warranty for the remainder of the system. All qTOWER³ models are available as a standalone system with a 10” touchscreen or as a computer-controlled system. The small 10.8" x 10.8” footprint makes it ideal for any lab.
